She's a DOLL!! A Real Fashion Icon! Barbie Does DVF: Fashiontribes LA Story Salutes the Diane Von Furstenberg Barbie!

Nearly every girl in the US has had a Barbie doll in her lifetime. Now there is one for the littlest fashionistas as well as us grown-up girls who never quite left our "lust" for Barbie-ness behind.  What happens when you combine the fashion savvy of Diane von Furstenberg and  littlest fashion icon, Barbie? "It’s a Wrap " Barbie.. courtesy of designer von Furstenberg. 

Designer Diane von Furstenberg and Barbie® doll celebrate the popularity of von Furstenberg’s signature Wrap dress with the Diane von Furstenberg Barbie® doll.  Hitting stores in early December 2006, the collector Barbie® doll makes the perfect gift for fashionistas of all ages. 

The Diane von Furstenberg Barbie® doll celebrates the hugely popular Wrap dress —  famous in the 1970s and currently back in vogue — with a fresh, cosmopolitan look featuring the signature  von Furstenberg look with a pink-and-white iconic twig printed wrap dress..

Ever so chic, Barbie does her DVF dress proud by coming completely decked out with  earrings, bracelet, and a DVF inspired purse. Ready for another day of city-inspired life, the Diane von Furstenberg Barbie® doll is  prepared to jet-set across the world for another exciting adventure which includes  a newspaper, suitcase and passport.

“Diane von Furstenberg and Barbie® are both fashion-forward and timeless, making them fashion favorites for girls and women of all ages,” said Chuck Scothon, general manager and senior vice president, Girls, Mattel Brands. “We’re incredibly proud to align Barbie® with such an iconic designer who has inspired and empowered so many women over the years with her chic designs.”
“Barbie® represents a confident and independent woman with an amazing ability to have fun while remaining glamorous for over 47 years,” said Diane von Furstenberg. “The modern wrap dress is the perfect way to capture Barbie® doll’s timeless and sophisticated glamour.”

We couldn’t agree more– and we hope that Santa REMEMBERS both this doll (and where to get it) along with the matching grown-up dress for us "big girls" for the holidays!
